The vehicle is staffed by a crew that have been miniaturised and kept in a Borrower-like state by a compression field and the Teselecta the Doctor encountered in Berlin, 1938, was Justice Department Vehicle 6018. Deadly, powerful and almost unstoppable, it was only defeated when Amy forced its ruthless crew to abandon it.
